I believe in taking a holistic approach to counseling. Since most issues are interrelated, positive change in one area begins a ripple effect of change in others.

Norman, Oklahoma is a great place for families with children and teenagers of all ages to settle down. Regardless of age, there truly is something nearby for everyone within the family. Make your way to the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History for an educational experience like no other. Be sure to visit the hands-on room designed with children in mind.1 Then make your way to the Thunderbird Riding Stables for a horseback trail ride like you have never experienced before. Call ahead of time to make reservations for your entire family. Another great attraction your children and teenagers will love is the Little River Zoo. Here you can explore wildlife in simulated environments. The city's Hollywood Theater 14 is a great place to watch newly released family-friendly films. Be sure to grab popcorn as you make your way to your seats to make this outing complete.
